Beginning Sewing

School of Sewing allows you to follow in the footsteps of a group of beginners who shared one goal- to learn to use their sewing machines. This book begins with easy-to-follow instructions for how to use a sewing machine and advice on buying fabric and tools and then progresses through several projects.
